Talk Like Tigers Short Info

"Are you up to speed with Newcastle twins Charlotte and Stephanie yet? You should be, particularly if you like electro pop with plenty of invention behind it." (The Crack)

Talk Like Tigers are "one of the new wave of North East pop acts." (Nick Roberts, BBC Introducing)

Talk Like Tigers have "released their first full EP, a four-track self-titled effort that marks their most confident and rounded statement yet... the twins behind Talk Like Tigers can look on their new EP and launch gig as another milestone in their aim to break through the glass ceiling and to bring their twin creativity to as many people as possible." (Narc)

Their music is brand new and is showered with the glittering harmonies that only siblings can produce, harmonies which have taken the twin sisters around the world touring as backing singers. Their travels have certainly influenced their writing and inspired the band to create something truly different.

Talk Like Tigers have played notable festival and headliner gigs, including Generator’s Evolution Emerging Festival and Northern Electric Festival. They have also supported BBC 6 Music favourites, Samaris. Their self released singles Animalistic and Gunning, have attracted the attention of BBC Introducing leading them to record a BBC live session. Recently, they have been played on the Huw Stephens show on BBC Radio 1.

The band accepted a UBeat Music Award for the best electronic Act of the Year 2016 and performed live at the award show in the O2 Academy Newcastle, which will be broadcast on television.

Tropical, the first single to be taken from Talk Like Tigers' debut EP "is an utter delight, a mid-tempo groover that is nicely stripped back and given plenty of air to breathe... displaying more creativity in one track than some bands manage over an entire album." (The Crack) "Tropical is a sensual slice of electro pop... with crystalline production and sparkling vocals." (Narc Magazine)

The lead single, It Isn't Over from the EP "sounds like the kind of galloping synth pop that Kylie was knocking out during her imperious phase. Super sweet, but never cloying, this is another fine string to Talk Like Tigers' already impressive bow." (The Crack)

Talk Like Tigers' debut EP was released on 24th February 2017. The EP was launched with a special gig in Newcastle at Think Tank? Underground, Head of Steam. It was a packed out show with an all female line up to celebrate women in music!

OTHER PRESS QUOTES ABOUT TALK LIKE TIGERS:

"So much talent!" Shell Zenner, Amazing Radio

"Fabulous harmonies and danceable hooks that go off like roman candles. Exhilarating stuff then, with this Tiger certainly earning it's stripes from the get go" The Crack Magazine

"Pounding drums, melodic synths and soaring harmonies: Talk Like Tigers have finally unveiled their debut single Animalistic, a hefty chunk of polished electro pop that's also just a little bit dirty - a taut, sensuous, almost flawlessly constructed pop gem that the likes of Robyn would be proud of. Animalistic is a ferocious electro tune that'll be stuck in your head all day.'' Eugenie Johnson, Narc Magazine

"Electro Pop at its best!! Go and buy 'Gunning' NOW!" Libby Walker, Mkfm Radio

"Talk Like Tigers are well on their way to becoming one of this year's most promising acts." Wonky Sensitive

''Talk Like Tigers rour loudly as the duo embark on an impressive journey into superstardom... The dazzling 'Gunning' video is a page ripped straight out of the Tron playbook, doused with laser beams and memerizing slow-motion intensity.'' Popdust

"I’m surprised it wasn’t recommended to me on my Spotify Discover Weekly playlist with it’s great synth beat and Robyn-esque vocals...either way, everyone should definitely be watching this band grow." Rhyme Et Reason

LIVE REVIEWS:
